Lookbook: Why You Acting Spicious?

4/01/2013

Happy April Fools' Day! This is no joke. It's shorts season in the bay. And the jacket was actually a last-minute call, but I think it works. This is my first time wearing this magenta beauty, but I think it might be just a bit too big on me. If you think you'd like it for yourself, then you might be in luck because I'm thinking about putting it up on Layered Muse for you muses.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I spent the weekend with friends in Austin. We went to S. 6th Street, the Alamo theater, Juan In A Million, saw hundreds of bats, came in 3rd place at trivia, saw the James Franco movie Spring Breakers and much more. Keep Austin weird.
So this look is part of the Blogger Week at Shoplately that lasts from April 1-April 4. I'm featured highlighting my favorite accessories by XVII.| Forever 21 open back top | Boy Meets Girl coup d'oeil shorts | Charlotte Russe twisted floral wedges (similar) | XVII chop chop ring c/o Shoplately | XVII cross my heart bracelet c/o Shoplately | Nastygal Dakota drape jacket | XVII swallows ear cuff c/o Shoplately | XVII hollow pyramids necklace c/o Shoplately | Michael Kors sunglasses |By the way, thanks for all the feedback from my last blog post on blogger insight. I'll get to your blogs shortly (I just had to catch up on The Walking Dead finale and the Game of Thrones premier first).

What do you think of this look?
